Let's Leap for Learning and the Planet!
Yes, 2012 is a Leap Year
So, let's really USE that extra day. I am asking you to do something to save the planet and help out Fillmore Arts Center
on that day. SIGN UP for wind power!
Yes, TODAY we are 2 months away from April 22nd, EARTH DAY
, and our deadline for signing up to clean, green wind power and donating $25 for every sign-up
to the Friends of Fillmore. That adds up to over $600 to Fillmore if we reach the 25 sign ups
, but NOTHING if we don't!
To sweeten the pot, I have an offer for you. The first five people to get three sign ups
-- so it can be you and two friends, three neighbors even if they aren't connected to Fillmore, your cousin and your parents who live in Maryland, whatever (ABOUT ANY DC/MD PEPCO or BGE users, really!) -- will be able to get a 50% discount on a massage
or other service from The Spa Room
on Wisconsin Ave, just down from Tenley Circle. (Just email me the name of each person signed up, so I can confirm them, and I'll send you the details on your discount massage.)
Using this link
to sign up takes just 5 minutes. You'll need your PEPCO or BGE account number and that's about it. Make sure to mention Friends of Fillmore as you go through the sign-up process.
And then when you try out this ecological footprint calculator
, you can be just a little bit smug!

Fillmore Arts Center On YouTube
Hopefully, everyone had a chance to look at the Fabulous Fillmore Video
, but with fewer than 70 views, I'm not sure every Fillmore parent has seen it. In case you missed it the first time, now it's forever stored on the Friends of Fillmore site
, on our ABOUT page
, so pass it on to your friends and family
Key Elementary students from the Fillmore classes of 2006, 2008, 2010, and 2014 made this video, which captures the essence of what Fillmore Arts Center does for its students and how it operates
Thanks for reading. I know everyone is busy!! Keep your eyes peeled for the Fillmore Arts Camp brochure, coming out on March 5th!
Remember, the arts make us smarter,
